Subject: [gentoo-science] sys-cluster infiniband , mpi related soft. update request

Hello, i've seen that Infiniband drivers and other related stuff, like 
MVAPICH2 and openib etc. are a bit outdated. Recently i started 
administering a HPC cluster for molecular dynamics simulations (for ex. 
gromacs) from HP and found, that it works best on gentoo ;) . But i need 
most recent, fastest infiniband and mpi software for my work. 
gentoo-science overlay, if it comes to infiniband, doesn't work at all, 
i had to change some ebuilds to make them compile and work, but still, 
have some problems with MVAPICH2.

Please sys-cluster developers, if it isn't too much work, update ebuilds 
to open fabrics OFED 1.4 , MVAPICH 1.2 etc. (all dependencies). Or 
please, give me some instructions how to publish my modified ebuilds 
that, at least works (on contrast to openib-1.1.ebuild from overlay ;) )

best regards, Janusz
